October meeting

With Doug's guidance, our Young Makers began working on The Towel, a radio control airplane project originally from Brooklyn Aerodrome, published in the Make Volume 30, and now sold as a kit in the Maker Shed.

The kit, however, is quite expensive, whereas the parts themselves can be had for a fraction of the  cost, particularly when sourced in bulk as Doug was able to do.

Sharing straight edges and blades, it took most of the meeting for everyone to be able to cut out the basic shape of the deck.
Next time we will mount the servos and begin the motor mounts.
